Turns out, E-cigarettes can indeed help people give up smoking faster than any other methods out there.

A recent study by the University of Exeter and University of Melbourne and funded by Cancer Research UK, confirmed that in order to stop people from smoking, e-cigarettes should be advertised more openly. The study appeared in the Harm Reduction Journal.

Hannah Farrimond, from the University of Exeter, who led the research said, "There are real opportunities for stop smoking services to use e-cigarettes more actively to help people give up smoking, but for this to happen policies around the country need to be consistent, and people need to share best practice and know what others are doing."

Farrimond further mentioned that for the smoking cessation work to succeed the initiative should go beyond specialist clinics where only a few smokers go to.

Experts believe that this initiative should support smoking cessation in psychiatric units, community mental health settings, community centres, and smoke-free hospitals.

George Butterworth, of Cancer Research UK's senior policy manager, said that e-cigarettes are far less harmful than tobacco cigarettes. (ANI)
